Today was such a beautiful day there was no reason to not get out and “run”! It felt absolutely amazing. Inside I am trying to hold in my excitement for the Spring as tomorrow it could be snowing, after all I live in Colorado. But I have realized that the nice weather makes it so much more fun to get activity in. Even my son upon asking him if he wanted to go for a run in the stroller, ran to the garage with excitement.
A mile and a half later, full bladder and a sleepy little one we made it home.
One thing I love about Colorado is that one day we are freezing and playing in snow and the next it is 60 degrees and sunny! I took advantage of a beautiful day and got a workout in outside while my little one was napping. My energy has been extremely low the past week and a half and workouts have been a struggle – not today. Between a good night sleep and great food for the day I had plenty of energy and took full advantage of it.
I have a lot of people asking me have I eat so here is a run down of what I ate today to keep my energy going…
Breakfast: Protein Shake (20 ounces Coconut Milk, 2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder, 1/4 cup frozen cherries- tastes just like chocolate covered cherries), Chorizo and a Chocolate Gluten Free Protein Muffin
Lunch: Chicken Breast with Bacon and Brussel Sprouts
Snack: Protein shake following my workout (20 ounces Coconut Milk, 2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder and 1 tsp powdered Peanut butter)
2nd Snack: UCAN bar
Dinner: Pork Chop with Green Chili, Sweet Peppers, Tomatoes and Onions made in the Crockpot. Blueberries for dessert!
